Posted by jsweitz

The Weitz group is pleased to announce the publication of ClearedLeavesDB: an online database of cleared plant leaf images in Plant Methods. The manuscript describes the public website and database: ClearedLeavesDB.org. The database is an online collection of cleared leaf images from different investigators and labs around the world gathered together in a single place.

The objective of the database is to:

  • Facilitate research advances in the study of leaf structure and function
  • Preserve and archive cleared leaf data in an electronic, accessible format
  • Promote the exchange of new data and ideas for the plant biology community

The database and website were developed by Abhiram Das, a PhD Candidate in bioinformatics. This is Abhi's first paper - congratulations!
